Europass Diploma Supplement
Europass Diploma Supplement is an initiative of the European Union to promote mobility of graduates. It is underpinned by a joint decision of the EU Commission and Council and arises from agreement by education ministers from 41 countries (Bologna Agreement 1999). Europass Diploma Supplement is designed to give greater transparency and recognition of qualification.
